  • I was 22 weeks and a few days... you're fine if the doc hears the heartbeat at check ups.

  • I can't remember when I felt the baby the first time (sorry, mine are 10 and 9) but I know it was well into the 20's.

  • you might be feeling t move just not realizing it yet because it prob still feels like gas or flutters. I dont believe it started feeling like actual kicks until i was abt 20-22 weeks.

  • it's different with every pregnancy. with my son i didn't feel him move until i was 21 weeks along and with my daughter i was 15-16 weeks along.

  • I first felt it around 21 weeks and then i realized that i was so what feeling flutters but just didnt realize it. If your do can hear the heart beat then everything is fine ya just gotta wait till he is ready to let ya feel lol

  • It always takes longer to feel the baby move with the first pregnancy. I believe that I felt my first actual kick at 26 to 27 weeks. It's different for everybody tho. I have heard with the second pregnancy that since they know the feeling, they feel it sooner.
